My Experience as a Teacher

I come from a musical bakcground and have been playing drums for as long as I remember. I like to make sure my passion is shared with my students as well as making sure you learn in the direction you love. .

I have played with a numerous amount of people ranging in various genres from electro-rock to Bengali-folk, and during the journey of playing the many styles I have has increased my passion for the instrument. The reward for teaching is just as great; being able to share knowledge, experience, skills and wisdom to whoever is passionate to learn.

Whether for fun, starting out new, learning new concepts or breaking ground, the content of my teaching will be based on YOUR needs of the instrument.

I am also experienced in preparing students for grade exams. I have taken many students though a variety of grade books from Rockschool, Trinity etc and helping them achieve the grades they deserve.

If grades, or theory is just not for you I am always happy to teach students how to play their favourite music, study their favourite drummers and their signature techniques or playing style that made them so successful. I can help you continue to have a lifetime of enjoyment playing the drums.
